“Dear PoPville,

I’m a masters educated, CPR and first aid certified, newly single professional in dc who has found myself with more time on my hands and little to no desire to jump back into the dating world anytime soon. This combination, along with my love for children has led me to decide to seek evening and weekend babysitting jobs. Just one problem – I have zero idea where to start advertising! I considered and ended up starting with craigslist but I fear that craigslist ads are becoming more and more sketchy for things like this. As an unmarried, childless yuppie I don’t know what listservs and places would make the most sense. Could you request a plea for ideas from your readers?”

For the parents out there – how did you find your babysitters?
